2. LEARNING OUTCOMES
The course aims to introduce the basic methodologies of application development and computer programming for use in many other core curriculum subjects. The course introduces fundamental algorithm development methods and their implementation into computational environments.
This basic course aims at introducing students to the basic concepts of constructing and implementing algorithms of numerical methods for solving science and engineering problems. The course starts with an emphasis on understanding the context of problem solving, selecting suitable techniques and numerical methods, and constructing a suitable algorithm. Algorithms are implemented in a modern Fortran computing environment.
After successfully completing the course, a student will be able to:
